We do what is in our nature to do, each of us, at the moment of necessity. What is 'better' or not is a moot point. We have no 'choices'.)

as Jesus upon the cross said.
Other contributors, who I guess would endorse nameless's, ((do you?)) , support situational ethics, I gather.
Is it ever reasonable to make any hard and fast rule about ethics?
Or is it always best to judge every situation as unique?

I think that is generally more a matter of preparedness than conscious thought, but what if it was a situation that you were allowed to think out?
For example if you were in a room with a three year old girl and you knew that one of you had to die and it was completely your choice which one of you it was what would you do?
Personally, regardless of what other people thought of me, I doubt that I could continue to enjoy my life knowing that someone else was dead because I put myself first.
